On Wednesday October 1, Granite Park Jr. High’s faculty and staff hosted the second annual Parent Night. Everyone worked incredibly hard to put on a special and meaningful night for the parents and families of Granite Park. Parent night is a great opportunity for the school and community partners to come together to support Granite Park and the larger community.
Parent Night is a great opportunity for students and their families to learn more about our school, community partners, and services offered. They can find out about how to stay engaged and support student academic success. It was exciting to see so many parents and families of Granite Park excited to learn more about their student’s school and community!
This year, the night offered booths for information from community partners, workshops on Grade Book and Student Success, and over 50 families received flu shots from the Say BOO to the Flu clinic. Latinos in Action students also stayed the night to offer babysitting for the parents. The event wrapped up with dinner and every family receiving a hygiene kit!
The highlight of Parent Night was knowing that parents and families received access to needed resources. It was amazing to see students rise to the occasion while also serving, leading, and teaching! What an incredibly successful night it was, with so many community partners coming together to help change the odds for kids and families!
